Toni Hiatt writes mostly stories, songs, and pen-pal letters. She has a poem in antilang. and hopes to write more poems “one day” (which will be in September when the MFAs are forced into poetry). She has studied anthropology, classical voice, jazz music, and herbalism, and draws inspiration from forests, folklore, and Jungian psychology among other intriguing things.
Toni’s writing has been published in PRISM Magazine, UVICs XANADU Anthology, and she occasionally covers events for the Canadian music blog RideTheTempo. (Because she really really likes going to see music!) She has performed and collaborated on two albums with her Victoria, BC band Cathedral Bloom, and crushed the patriarchy as her literary alter-ego ‘Virginia Were-Woolf’ in the 2017 performance by the West Coast League of Lady Wrestlers artist collective.
She is currently finishing her first year of an MFA in writing at the University of Saskatchewan and has at this point given up all hope in ever getting to comfortably walk outside with less than six layers of clothing.
